Hi Giovanni,

 

I changed your visibility back to public, keep in mind that if you do not earn in the next 30 days your visibility will be switched back to private. Thank you.

Hi Goran,

I'm not active on Upwork and you have rightfully set my profile to Private.

A potential client is discussing a project and wants to view it.

 

What should I do?

Thanks.

Hi Sunil,

 

I just changed your profile visibility back to public, if you have submit a proposal to a job your client will be able to view your profile even if your visibility is set to private. You can learn more about this here, thank you.

Hi , 

What do I need to do If ongoing project has Milestone of over 30 days & it was considered as "I'm not earning" & made my profile as private ? .

I know it'll be Public once milestone has been paid out but I would like to suggest this case while releasing this policy.

Hello (to whom it may concern), 

 

My profile has no problem for the moment, so no issues to solve. I only want to say my opinion. 

 

The funny thing is that now that I am working and earning again (and not available for any other job) my profile is public, and if and once my project is over, when I will have to seek for another job or hope someone will see how good iI am and invite me for work - the client will simply not see me because my profile is private! (in this perspective, I must say that I consider myself extremelly lucky that my previous employer wanted to recontact me, otherwise, I would certainly remain private for much more time...)

 

I understand that having too much "not earning people" is not a good for Upwork, but still, I think that Freelancers who already did nice income (so earning for Upwork too) should have a kind of nicer status. Maybe not a premium one (upwork has to live from something, of course), but still, a kind of reward, like available profiles... otherwise, freelancers are mostly reduced to applying to the jobs and hoping that someone will eventually accept their bid.

 

Is it possible to reconsider this matter? This would be really great!

 

Thanks for your time, 

 

Carine

Hi Carine,

Thank you for your feedback, I will share this with our product manages.
I would also like to confirm that once a profile is changed to private freelancers have one paid and 2 free options to change their visibility back to public.
They can reach out to us (Moderators) here or to our Customer support, or upgrade to our Plus membership plant. Thank you.
